|Grace Loney, Visual Artist, Art Waves #169|
Abstract artist Grace Loney says she wants to give those who view her art the same experience listeners have when a piece of music surrounds and totally engages them. She also says everyone, of any age, should give themselves permission to stop over thinking it and embrace their creativity. We couldn't get David Wilcox's O Freedom for the ending, so we played her second choice: Anthem by Leonard Cohen.

Artist and arts organizer Annette Paiement presents the legendary singer of Mozambique, Wazimbo, in a fascinating hour full of the kind of music that has made "world music" so popular in recent years. Through Matapa, an arts organization founded by Annette with Filimone Mabjaia, Wazimbo is the first of many Mozambiquan and Canadian artists who will bridge the two cultures. The music of Wazimbo will have you smiling and dancing even as it probes your soul.
